Published on the Cognition Audioworks and Streetsound websites, the Cognition Audioworks Techno/Electro Audio Chart is designed so that people can not only see a regular online techno/electro chart, but also read about the records charted, link to the labels charted, and hear one track in RealAudio from each of the releases charted. Feedback has been super positive and plans are now underway to start doing this Chart every two weeks, instead of once a month. [This chart continues to be sent to mags worldwide as usual. The monthly Techno/Electro Report--published online on the Cognition site and online and in print on the Streetsound site and excerpted in magazines such as Magic Feet (UK) and Klublife (Toronto)--will still include a chart as well.]

News can be emailed anytime to for the Report and the Cognition website's News section. Tests, CDRs, DATS, and cassettes (please include release date, cat #, and distributor) for the Chart, Report, and the weekly In The Mix syndicated radio/Internet show are always appreciated. Thanks. Andrew
